Heather Hill

Curator of Education

Hi! My name is Heather Hill and I am the Curator of Education at the Kentucky Derby Museum. I was born and raised an hour north of Louisville and attended Indiana University in Bloomington. I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Visual Arts Education and immediately started at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts teaching ceramics, summer camps and various art classes for the community. I was able to work with everyone from toddlers to the elderly, building and expanding my skills as an educator.

I began my journey as the Outreach Education & Program Coordinator in January 2013. Since we all learn differently, I try to engage at all multiple levels which has led to the development of a very animated teaching style. This blends well with the interactive elements of our programs, and I have received many comments from teachers that students who normally do not participate were some of the most engaged in the group.

I am thrilled that my job takes me around Kentucky teaching students about the Derby. I love meeting people and exploring new towns and schools.


The Kentucky Derby Museum's Education Outreach Program brings the Kentucky Derby to schools. Read what teachers have said about their experience.
